Round Knob Lodge evokes memories of a generation past. It is a very secluded property with modern amenities that allow you to host a business retreat, family gathering or outdoor wedding. Built by Southern Railway executives in the early 1930's as a retreat, it has been expanded and remodeled to provide modern conveniences and safety while maintaining the relaxed feel of a rustic retreat. It is situated on 20 acres with a trout creek running through the property. Train enthusiasts will enjoy the many antique railroad items displayed throughout the lodge. The main level has a Great Room with a magnificent fireplace and plenty of space to spread out. This large room and adjacent deck each have approximately 1000 square feet. These spaces provide great flexibility for gatherings. A newly remodeled kitchen provides modern facilities for feeding groups. There is seating capacity for over 25 people. The Game Room is directly below the Great Room and is accessed by a wonderful spiral staircase. It has a pool table, foosball table, dart board, large card/game table, a widescreen 60 inch TV and a great bar with ice machine. There are 6 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths.

The main floor has three bedrooms:

~ Master's Suite has a king bed and full bath across the hall

~Captain's Quarters has a king bed and attached Jack & Jill full bath that is shared with the First Mates' Cabin ~First Mates' Cabin has two single beds.

The lower level has three bedrooms:

~Charleston Room has a queen bed and attached full bath

~Tackle Box Room has a queen bed and attached full bath that is shared with the Bunk Room

~Bunk House Bedroom has 5 twin beds

There is an additional split full bath (shower behind one door and toilet/sink behind an adjacent door) off the lower hall. There is an elevator to assist in moving between the two levels. The views of the nearby mountains and the ponds on the property are amazing from Round Knob Lodge and 'The Overlook' above the creek (stair access from the parking lot). The two ponds are stocked with trout and bass. There is also a level area adjacent to the ponds and creek that is perfect for an outdoor gathering. Power is available in this area. Wireless internet is available throughout the Lodge. A sound system is available to play music from an iPod, CD or the radio. Speakers are located in both the Great Room and the Game Room. Please note: sheets and towels ARE provided for your convenience. This beautiful estate is an easy 40 minute drive from downtown Asheville and a short 15 minute drive to Black Mountain. Come enjoy!!

Facility charges for events on the grounds are $1000 in addition to the rental fee.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a great place to relax and enjoy! Beautiful mountain scenery. Rustic, yet elegant, with all the comforts of home. Excellent renewal for the soul. Wonderful trout fishing in the pond as well as the stream. Throughly enjoyed all the railroad historic nostalgia throughout the lodge. 5 Stars just doesn't seem enough.

Reviewer Comments:
Our family reunion was a happy one at Round Knob Lodge

Our group enjoyed the central location for people from Fla. to Va., nearby sites and outdoor offerings (Chimney Rock State Park,horseback riding, skeet shooting, casting lessons, water aerobics and swimming, biking), game room, large dining table, screened porch and especially enjoyed the ponds and overall setting. There were a few problems with the bedrooms, from very cold to very warm and with a leak from an upstairs bathroom onto a bed downstairs. We also felt that a larger refrigerator would have helped with our group of 13. The downstairs refrigerator was difficult to access and somewhat unreliable in temperature. These issues are raised only for consideration when upgrades and replacements are made. Our overall stay was a joy for all of us. We would hope to stay there again someday.

Manager responded on 10/24/2014:
Glad you had a great family reunion. Thanks for the upgrade suggestions. I also want to make sure the leak you mentioned was resolved! Looking into it. Thanks for staying with us this past summer!

Fabulous! The setting is gorgeous. Roomy. Lovely Furniture themes. Very clean & modernized. Only thing: was very cold in basement bedrooms, but OK when we covered vents. You need to provide more vent covers. We found 2 upstairs.
Everything worked very well except: upstairs shower by kitchen and phone and internet worked only in one area of house (train museum by elevator) sometimes did not work at all, but it is the mountains! The ride up to the lodge was too narrow & scary for older family members to drive up. We loved the paddle boat--great for adults and with kids. We would consider returning to this place or recommending. Price reasonable also for what you are getting. Thanks!

We had a lovely time at this property. It was a very private, secluded location. The grocery store in town (3 miles away) was more than adequate for our use.

18 friends all gathered together for a labor day weekend retreat at Round Knob Lodge. We had a very relaxing time. The home is placed on top of a steep hill (the knob), which overlooks a picturesque scene of two large ponds. There is a real working railroad track that wraps around the lodge and trains slowly move around the property through out the day and night, which adds to the charm of the place. The ponds are very well stocked with rainbow and brown trout, bass, sunfish, and carp. The property promotes keeping the fish you catch and the large 16'' plus trout were a delicious addition to our meals. The lodge is well appointed with a large modern kitchen which we easily cooked large lasagna, turkey, and ham dinners in. The decor is charming with authentic train lights, trophy mounted animal heads and skins on the walls (my favorite was a bison over the enormous great room's rock fireplace mantle). The game room is very large with a pool table, large bar, foozball table, and large TV. Everyone in attendance to a person wanted to come again next year. It was a truly remarkable property.
